Police believe the damage to the ceiling of the corridor was caused by the suspect, not an explosion.

Even as the police was investigating the explosion, another suspicious package was recovered near the movie theatre.

Based on information provided by witnesses, investigators said they are looking for a person of interest who is described as a middle-aged white male, with a "heavy/stocky build", wearing a gray shirt and a gray hat. "Bomb technicians examined the contents of the backpack and determined it did not contain any incendiary or explosive devices", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.
